how to make those babies last
Although, we do our best to create garments which are made to last, we need you to take good care of them. Oh, and did you know that by looking after your clothes, you’re actively reducing your carbon footprint? We thought that’s a fact worth sharing with you.
Here’s what you can to make your clothing last for years to come ...
IT'S LAUNDRY DAY
Rule 1 - Wash less: several studies point out that we tend to wash our clothing more often than necessary.
Rule 2 - Spice up your cleaning techniques: instead of washing your garments, get creative. Remove stains manually, air your clothing to freshen them up, or freeze them for 24 hours to get rid of nasty smells and bacteria.
Rule 3 - Wash with love: wash on low temperature programs with a relatively low spinning RPM … especially if you wash linen as its fibers start break and the garment loses its softness! (Find out more about how to wash your linen piece, here.)
Rule 4 - Wash well: use an eco-friendly detergent and mix small and large items so your clothes can “move” more freely, resulting in better washing
Rule 5 - Keep a low profile: restrain from tumble drying your garments - let them air dry - the environment will thank you your patience.
And here’s a playlist for when you do your washing - you’re welcome.
